Let Freedom Ring!

Hi all - can you believe it's already the July 4th holiday? Unbelievable how quickly time has flown this year.

I took this image last summer at Chandler's Landing in Rockwall, Texas. It was so hot and it was so fun. Always an awesome show out there.

No matter where you celebrate - please drive safely, and most of all, have a great time!!!

New Logo is ready!

My new logo is finally ready & I'm so excited to share. Many of you have asked - "what about the butterfly?" - well, I still love them and you'll see them show up now and again.

This summer I am revamping. I'm going to be using a new logo, major updates to my site (or maybe create a new one), and revising my pricing structure (don't worry - no major suprises - just adjusting because of the rising gas costs). I will also be introducing {shelleystyle} Gallery Collections! Since it's raining this weekend, I hope to post some samples.

Here are the logo concepts - tell me which is your favorite.

So sad - no jewelry

I looked high and low and found a great quality product. I invested in the kit and was so pleased when it arrived. I accepted my first orders, and found out my gal moved to England!! That in itself isn't bad, but it's not what I was expecting. I was never informed that this was the plan, and a little upset that I had to follow-up on an order to find out.

For now, I don't plan to add jewelry back into my products offered. However, If you know of any TEXAS based jewelry artists - please link me up!!!

Where's Shelley?

Wow - I've been super busy this past month. A few weeks ago, my husband and I found a GREAT house. We fell in L-O-V-E with it. It's just north of Po-dunk and just east of Boon-docks. Ever hear of Royce City? Oh my goodness - it's so far - Hunt County to be exact. Though we loved the house, we ran the numbers and decided to wait.

I'm not a huge basketball fan - but I became hooked when the Mavricks made the playoffs. I went with my friend (and trusty assistant) Wendy to a game against the San Antonio Spurs. I think I was more excited to see one of the stars of my favorite TV show - Desperate Housewives - Eva Longoria, aka Gabrielle Solis (she's in the cute brown pant suit in the middle of the image). I took alot of pictures. Wendy told me to stop "photo-stalking". Yes, I'm now a member of the paparazzi.

So, what all does this have to do with the photography business? Nothing - just spending needed time with my family and friends. I've had a super busy year, and I decided to take off the month of June. I do have some sessions scheduled in July. As everyone knows - I don't work in August - too darn hot; however, I'm taking appointments now for September and October.
